FX Leaders Residential

8th-9th June 2023
Luton Hoo Hotel & Spa, London, UK

Tailored exclusively for:
Heads of FX Trading, Senior FX Traders, Heads of Trading Technology, Treasury from global and local long-only asset management companies, currency managers, hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and corporates…

We’re delighted to be bringing the Finance Hive FX Leaders community back together for our second inaugural FX Leaders Residential Meeting at The Luton Hoo on 8 and 9 June. Over the past two years, FX Heads of Desk have had to improvise and adapt to rapidly changing market situations as they transitioned teams to remote working whilst still maintaining technological excellence, and navigating key regulatory deadlines and reforms.

The Finance Hive’s FX Leaders Residential Meeting is created in proud collaboration with the FX Steering Committee and is where the most senior FX trading professionals come together for an intimate and closed-door discussion. Invitations are restricted to 70 Heads of Trading, Heads of FX Trading, Senior FX Traders, Heads of Trading Technology and Heads of Analytics from the largest 100 buy side firms (ranked by AUM), with a presence in Europe.

This experience consists of three deep-dive repetitions of roundtable discussions around themes suggested by our members; closed door masterclasses; tailored 1-1 meetings in dedicated buy side to buy side and buy side to partner lounges; buy side technology user groups to share experiences, usage, strengths and key development areas of your core providers to ensure you are getting the most out of your systems enabling you to influence providers going forward as one buy side voice; trading zone to offer you some space in case you’d have an emergency on your desk; Centre Stage opportunity for FX Future Leaders; inspirational speeches; and so much more.

Your peer group is your secret source – closed doors, open minds, Chatham House Rule applies.



Our roundtables are all supported and led by an industry leader, facilitating group conversation, designed to help drive forward key market structure and technological initiatives

The framework of our residential agendas is designed around roundtable discussions. All discussions operate under Chatham House Rule, allowing for an open dialogue and free flow of ideas in a trusted setting.

Solution Spotlights

Our spotlights allow partners to showcase their solution in a private room, enabling members to see it in action, evaluate with their peers and provide direct feedback

Based on the most common investment areas within our buy side community, we match our members with recommended third party technology vendors.


Our educational masterclasses provide a more in-depth, hands-on private workshop led by an industry thought leader in a particular field, promoting an interactive learning experience

Each masterclass is open to 12-15 buy side attendees, grouped based on a common learning. This classroom style format allows the group to deep dive into a particular area, led by an industry expert.

1-2-1 Meetings

We incorporate dedicated 20-minute 1-2-1 meeting slots to connect members with other industry leaders who can help them with their key projects across the year

By understanding members most pressing concerns, we pair meetings with buy side members who are best placed to help each other with their own internal initiatives, technological investment areas and projects.

Unstructured Networking

After Day 1 of a busy programme, wind down with your community – dinner, casino, drinks and the odd surprise…and then it’s onto a very special Day 2

After the first day of a busy programme, wind down with your community at our Gala Dinner. Our Gala Dinners feature award winning menus with a 3-4 course meal, alongside extra special entertainment…

When members and partners awake on Day 2 have a range of activities designed to re-energise from the night before…from sheep herding to golf…unstructured networking at its best!
